Ratings for Dr. Maria Bleszynski
I was left feeling disregarded and unimportant. I was ushered out of the room after having a cyct removed with blood running down my legs dripping on the floor, and wasn't given a sanitary napkin for the blood and when I got home my pants were soaked in blood. My questions were not answered adequately during the procedure, and the stitches she put in after it was removed look and feel worse than the cyct I had removed. This experience triggered memories of sexual abuse and disregard from early childhood. I felt violated and left bleeding. Her bed side mannor was atrocious and not comforting in the least, even the nurse who was working with her was a bit insensitive after I was finished she seen how much I was bleeding and practically pushed me out of the room saying okay now you did good ... Bye now. Neither of them gave me after care instructions on how to care for my wound after I had left. ... The whole experience left me feeling vulnerable ... More so than expected... I went home and cried after and vomited ...... Now I must mention I am a strong women who can handle most of everything stoic in nature. But this experience left me feeling less human than when I walked in.
Hi Everyone, First i was feeling bit scared when i read the rewiews about Dr. Beeszynski. Today I visit to see her first time.. honestly I feel she is amazing doctor. She is very nice , gentle and helpful. Staff is good and helpful too. Thank you!
I have used Dr. Bleszynski for all four of my pregnancies. She is very to the point and does not sugar coat things. I suppose for some women this is difficult as they want to be pampered during their pregnancy. However for me I appreciated the honesty. She made sure I was very well taken care of by other specialists as needed given my last two pregnancies were when I was over 40. And, if given the opportunity, she actually has a super sense of humour. Treat her with respect and she treats you with respect. That said she has had a difficult time maintaining staff. And because she is across the street from the hospital there have been last minute cancelations or long waits due to her being called in for emergency surgeries/deliveries. I understand this and would have expected that if I needed her she would have come to me during the day as well.
Dr.Bleszynski has zero bedside manner. I had been informed that she pushes for c-sections and I initially did not believe it to be true. When I was in labour, she told me I needed a c-section as I was not dialating fast enough, I asked if me or my baby was in danger and she said no. She then announced to the room of nurses and family that she was leaving and “when I was done proving myself to everybody, she would be back for a c-section”, she refused to acknowledge that I was in the room and was speaking about me as if I was not there. She refused to answer any concerns I had unless I confirmed that I would do the (medically unnecessary) c-section. I know several people who she has given c-sections to and every single person has a horror story from her. During a nurse shift change, I overheard two of my nurses discussing the doctors on shift and how awful she was to them and the staff and when they saw that I overheard, they only could say “she’s not that bad” Do yourself a favour if you’re delivering at Surrey memorial and do not let this doctor come near you.
Ahhh run away!! Horrible experience with this lady. Cant speak english properly, very hard to understand. She is rude, very impatient and gave me bad vibes. Had to stick her hand inside to check baby and was aggressive, no smiles or calming words just cold. I was really worried about having her delivering my baby and I wanted to go as long as I could without an epidural. She looked at me as if I was stupid, cranked up pitocin quickly and said I was 9 centemters dialated when another gynecolgyst asked where the heck I got that information as I was only 6. Ending with my baby getting a swollen head and crowned ane baby being in distress so thankgod the next gynecolyst was able to take over. I ended up with a c section.
I had very good experience with Dr. Bleszynski.She was great during my pregnancy. She did all the appropriate tests. Her staff was very nice. They called me in advance if there was issues with appointments. They adjusted my appointments as per my needs. I did not wait more than 30 minutes in her office. If there is delay, I can understnd that Dr. Bleszynski is helping another patient who needs more help than me at that time. I feel that we should understand that there can be delay in medical profession as doctors are doing their best to help and treat patients. On the other hand I can understand patient’s frustration as they have other tasks to do. My experience with Dr. Bleszynski is that she is not sugar coated person but does her job perfectly.
She is an excellent Dr. She is quick and to the point. She says it as it is with no sugar coating and I like that. The draw back is getting through on the phone line and the wait time but even that has improved since the new receptionist she hired. I'd recommend her!
